Question: I just found out that I have hark no coritsol and only 10 DHEA-sulfate and lost memory, not dementia or alzimers and sweating 5 yrs and can't sleep , now heart and on oxygen now. I'm deaf born that way and misdignosed long time. Feel like I'm dying. Stresss is killing me. Antidepressants since they thought since I was 26. Then after over 10 yrs I told them to take me off all meds it turned out my thyroid. They messed with that till I figured the dose myself now I'm overactive. Not one dr listens. Hormone dr just walks out frustrated. I can't even talk to anyone. Now I can honestly say is this worth it to keep fighting for my life. I read on this. It's scary. What if I have tumor or cancer. Who will listen? Just cuz I'm deaf I'm dumb. No help from no one. Now I'm feel forced to get lawyer.

Brief Answer:
Hormones

Detailed Answer:
Sorry to learn about your symptoms.

Let us first be certain of your cortisol status. The best way to screen for the possibility of low levels is to check

Serum Cortisol at 8 am

At the same time the blood sample should be checked for the following too:

CBC
CMP
TSH
Free T4
Plasma Free Metanephrines
HbA1c

This will be a good start. If there is anything abnormal on any of these, your doctor will investigate further.

No one will listen to me. My hormone dr just kick me out and won't listen. I can get them to check it. Now I've had headaches for two weeks straight. I put my self in 29 mg if the coristol medication. I only have 10 DHEA-sulfate. I sweated for 5 yrs. I don't have no uterus at all. They took everything and my post menopause is good on my tests. I haven't seen slept since I sweated. 5 yrs. I feel like I'm dying. Can I die?? How do I get someone to care enough? I'm deaf and easy to fool with Drs. Now my thyroid is back. I've been so misdignosed so bad. Any suggestions. Now I'm in home health care and have a pca. I'm tired of living this way. I was never high manic before. With the low DHEA-sulfate u can be born with that right??

R u here in Las Vegas or know a good hormone or regular dr. My DHEA-sulfate is at 10. Never had medication after my overies and eggs removed and did have that fine in 1986. I have blood work and my coristol just started and dr never even monitored me. He just said take 30mg and go home. I ended up in ER vomiting and sweating worse.

Is microvascular leukoencephalopathy progressive? My mother had an MRI done in 2007 showing white matter disease, subcortical atrophy and small vessel disease. Over the past 6-7 years she had been falling in the house and I noticed after the falling she had been experiencing some forgetfulness. She has been to a neurologist about 5 years ago and he had given her a mini-mental state test, and sent her for neuropsych testing. She also suffers from renal insufficiency due to hypertension (she is in Stage 3). She was in stage 4 but a nephrologist has her in stage 3 due to the right medications. Her mother had died from uremic poisoning over 50 years ago (no dialysis then). Anyway, the neurologist based on his examinations and testing feels that she is in a mild to moderate stage of alzheimer. Her cardiologist told me that she has microvascular leukoencepahlopaty (she also has hardenining of the arteries). Her primary care physician feels that her dementia is microvascular (AKA vascular due to small vessel disease; she also has diabetes, coronary artery disease, hypertension, hypothyroidism, cholesterol.) She was a smoker, but stopped about 17 years ago. She also has perepheral artery disease. She is on many medications including aricept and namenda. She also experiences parkinson-like tremors. She had a eeg showing a slows of speech language done about 4 years ago. Based on what I have told you is this dementia of a vascular origin, or is it a mixed dementia? She is currently 86 years old and resides in a nursing home. I know I witnessed while she was at home some forgetfulness like leaving a stove on, poor hygiene, moods swings (verbally and hitting). Also, she would have auditory & visual hallucinations (hearing music, talking to imaginary people). I thought at this point she would be better in a facility where she is exposed to people her age and mind stimulation would be more available than staying at home with a home health aide. She had a sister who had passed away last year at 83 years old from alzheimer. Could both sisters have the same thing? I know her sister had hypertension and atrial fib.

Hi, my grandmother is 90 years old and she has suffered with dementia for the past eight or nine months. My uncle is her caregiver and he abruptly removed her from her condo as a result of a doctor visit where the doctor told him that she should not live alone. He did not realize that she was on medication for a thyroid condition and had not given it to her in six months. She loss over forty pounds. The problem that we have now is that she is taking her thyroid medicine, but she refuses to eat. She was recently hospitalized for not eating and the doctor recommended either a feeding tube or a blood transfusion due to her being an anemic. My quesiton is how do I get my grandmother to eat? She is back home but she has bed sores and soreness of her back because she was in the hospital for almost three weeks.
